Looking back, I can see my Music Monday themes are all over the map. Everything from guitars to fictional musicians to being thankful. Today, there's kindness:


Want to see something that makes you feel good? Here's a video of a young Pakistani man who did 22 acts of kindness for his 22nd birthday:



Do you have suggestions for kindness-inspiring or kindness-related songs? I like Don't Give Up by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. Also, Keep Your Head Up by Andy Grammer.

New Songs for Peace
RC Music, music inspired by Rachel Scott
Kindness by Steve Songs
Anti-Bullying Songs from Songs for Teaching
Songs of Compassion - Tibetan Mantras
Indian classical Music for Mental Peace

Hi Tabatha, thank you for the links, including the video. One of my favorite groups/links that I go to to see what's happening is http://playingforchange.com. This is a group that finds people all over the world to share music with. It is just wonderful. I used it with my students when we traveled to NYC a few years ago, & we sang Stand By Me in Central Park. Much fun!

Wonderful sentiment...and the video was inspiring!


Small acts of kindness can really go a long way, too. Sometimes they can cause a ripple effect, and just the thought of that gives me joy.
